Lochi's Little Corner of T&A

There are rats in the walls. There are rats and they are going to eat me in my sleep. Good thing my bed is on the FLOOR or else it would be super inconvenient for them.


This is surely something.

Q
Hi, Lochi. I noticed its been a while since you updated. Was just wondering if you were okay and how your living situation has fared.

Aaah Hi Anon, I’m so sorry it’s taken me so so long to answer this. To be honest I have been anxious about updating tumblr. I do…keep getting asks like this so I thought maybe I would use this one as a bit of an update. 

To be honest…I have a hard time assessing how much my situation has improved. I spent the first half of the summer homeless and was sort of…forced to take the first thing that came my way. There is no internet, no fridge, no washer and dryer…and I know too much about my roommates kids’ poop because it is always on the floor. I am kinda overwhelmed and usually horrified in my own living space…which I pay too much for and do not fit in. I’ve got a job that is always cutting my hours…but its a job. 

I’m sorry I haven’t updated. I honestly haven’t had the drive or mental stamina for art lately.  Thank you for checking in! And sorry for being for the most part, pretty underwhelming.

I might be dead but I rise for my babies

Q
#poverty? I think that might be a little insensitive to some of us who couldn't even afford a community college education much less a 4 year degree.

Oh wait. This is an “I’m Poorer You” contest? Sorry, no one told me. In this one does being more impoverished than someone mean your dick is bigger or smaller? And if that’s the case which one wins? 

#education is not relevant to my update post


Where’s the ladder I’m supposed to be climbing?

I keep getting asks about how I’m doing since I moved from Savannah. I feel bad for not answering said asks as I know it’s for the fact that a lot of people care and have expressed worry. Thank you. That means a lot to me.

The reason I haven’t really been on and updating with a status with how my life is coming together is because I haven’t wanted to say anything until I had good news. Life has been tough and I have been struggling. I have a job that doesn’t pay rent and an room in a house with a family I don’t know, doesn’t have a fridge, washer and dryer or internet. It costs 400 dollars a month. Which was everything I had…because I was about to become homeless. 

I kept waiting to update because I was sure some good enough news would come along eventually. But the fact of the matter is, I’m in the worst place I’ve ever been and for every little day that isn’t disastrous, there is another 4 that beat me into the ground. There’s optimism and there’s realism. It’s hard to talk to anyone I know about it because everyone I know has a safety net. It’s a nice thing to say “It will all workout somehow” or my favorite “I’m sure you’ll figure something out”  but the reality is that I’m in a very deep hole that’s filling up with sand. 

That’s my update. Sorry, I don’t have better news. 


I didn’t get a chance to throw this up because of traveling and in-access. I finished a thing a while ago for the Vertebrae Anthology that’s coming out soon. There are some slices (lol) of my piece. 
Sorry I’ve been so inactive otherwise. Lots of commissions.

Missing someone isn’t about how long it’s been since you have last seen them or the amount of time it has been since you last talked. It’s about that very moment when you are doing something and you wish that they were right there with you.
